Hello, Merry Christmas from Bavaria to all and thank you that you all like what I´m doing here
. I was busy last week and had fun to finish some details at the ship. Lets see what I did:
I finished the compass-platform with all railings and its stairs
Then I finished the Wheel out of 6 tiny parts, primed and painted it and fixed it at its place on the stern upper deck
The two torpedoboats were primed black and are awaiting its final Color. Sources here are contradictory - some show it in plain white, some others in grey. Still not decided which color I will use for them...
Then I cared for the bow lifeboat davits - in BRONCO´s kit they are rather poorly represented and much too thick for my taste. Here was the PE-set from BLUE STAR helpful as they offer you etched davits, each out of 4 parts - clean and careful work is needed here!
same pic taken from a more smaller angle - here you can see clearly the double-T beam. A big difference to the kit´s plastic part
And this is how the lifeboats together with its davits are looking attached to its mothership. Nice eh?
slowly I really need to fix everything on a seabase for a safer work at the ship´s details. Its getting very fragile now
